September Design Collaboration

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend! 

Today I'm sharing a design board that I did for a monthly collaboraton! You may remember my guest room design...I decided to change it up a little bit!
I added green into the mix after I fell in love with this painting. 

Make sure you check out all of these other great designs!

 I had so much fun with this month's collaboration because it went perfectly with the idea i had in my head for a space in my house. i've been thinking about the hall bathroom and how to make the most of the very small space. it's going to be the shared bathroom between the two kids so i wanted to reflect both genders as well as have a more grown up feel. when lizzie picked this inspiration pallette i knew it was meant to be!come visit meat Carissa Miss to see the sources!

I love these colors together. I had fun coming up with a more girly living room than I would normally use in my own home, but now I'm kind of obsessed with that rug. Stop by Sarah Loves to see all my sources!

 I love this color palette...soft but yet dynamic too. It made me think of an office space...ready for lots of creativity. I think my favorite is the fun they look like bubbles hanging in the air. Find sources here!

 I immediately fell in love with this month's color inspiration. The first word that popped into my head was Nautical. I wanted to use it in a dining room application so I had to give it some sophistication. Navy is one of my favorite hues and I love the contrast of the coral and gold against it. Stop by Designer in Teal to get this look for yourself.

This color pallet of coarl, mustard, and navy with a neutral background are perfect for a girly bedroom. Click over to Tiny Sidekick to see the sources!

 I'm calling this my "rustic glam" dining room. I got a bit overwhelmed with the possibilities because I love this color combo so much, but in the end I kept it pretty simple but cozy. I stuck with white walls (looking out for renters!) but I think a warm greige would be really pretty too. Visit me at Living Pretty Blog for more details and sources.

 I am in love with these two lights...but I think I love Overstock's even more!

Thirsty Thursday & An Appetizer

Where did this week go? Can you believe it's already THURSDAY??

You better believe I'll be making both of these tonight!

We have a ton of honeycrisp apples in our fridge right now and this cocktail is the perfect way to use them!I love champagne and I love apples so it's the perfect combination...and so EASY to make!

And the baked brie- I've loved it ever since I was a little kids. I've had it several places before but I think what makes this one better is what I serve it with... Anna's ginger thins. Y'all-these are SO good. You HAVE to try them...and what better way to try them than dipping them in Kahlua and brie??

Happy Thursday! What are you drinking tonight?

Christmas inspiration...

Cheers Bitches!

Yeah, it's Monday but I don't even care this week!

Eric and I headed to IOP early Friday morning for a
 bachelorette/bachelor weekend and got to catch up with some of my besties from Clemson.

You see, Jena was my roommate and Cameron was Eric's roommate. I knew they would be PERFECT for each other so I MADE (literally) it happen. Long story short, they fell in love and are getting hitched.

(almost all of us were reunited this weekend:)

It was so great to see everyone-we haven't seen most of them in over a year!!
Sad, I know. It won't happen again.

Eric dropped me off and headed to his house...

How cute are these welcome packages that were on our beds?

Lauren decorated the house SO CUTE!
I had to leave out a lot the pics:)

We had so much fun...

I can't wait for the wedding. 

Speaking of wedding, let me know if you see any short burnt orange dresses- we all have to find one for our bridesmaids dresses!

Do or Don't: Script House Numbers

I feel like I never finish one project at a time. 
I have SO many half done projects going on...

  •  the deck is ALMOST done
  • painters are painting the foundation next week
  • we're re-doing the front porch sometime this month
  • I have a few goodwill finds that need to be finished
  • Eric is adding on to his building
  • the guestroom is sort of getting there
  • I'm almost done with our dining room table
  • and it goes on and on and on and on....

Speaking of more projects...
 I'm thinking about adding script house numbers to the side of the house.
You see, we have numbers on the font of the house but our  door doesn't face the street. It faces the side street. Confusing I know... 

What is your take on script house numbers?
